Since we were able to collect some experiences working on the ‘3.0 New Core + FIPS’ project, I think that’s a perfect subject
to be discussed on the face-to-face meeting. I will add it to the list of proposed topics. As for the official documentation you
mentioned, are you talking about this one?

Matthias overcredits me: I just wanted to know his opinion about when we should use labels and when milestones (and that is why I wrote to him off-list, as a very confused and shy pupil asking a sensei for wisdom pearls).

All the alleged convincing was self-inflicted :P

And now that my ignorance is out of the closet... 
... I still have very confused ideas regarding the "best" conventional usage of github features like labels, milestones and projects: I read the official documentation about them and I grasp the general ideas behind them, but too often the boundaries are too foggy for me to navigate and pick the right tool for the job in a consistent and organic manner.
